In 2020, The Rea Foundation, Rea’s non-profit corporation for charitable giving, received some extra attention. We added structure and formalized and improved processes in order to make a greater impact in our communities. Since beginning this initiative, we created three committees:

FUNDRAISING
(chaired by Rick Lash, Independence): This committee is responsible for finding ways to raise more funds through the foundation, and thus make a greater impact.

CHARITABLE DONATIONS
(chaired by Ben Antonelli, Dublin): This committee is responsible for reviewing and approving donation requests, as well as formalizing the overall mission of The Rea Foundation and the types of causes we support.

MARKETING/COMMUNICATIONS
(chaired by Becca Johns, Rea Corporate Partners/Dublin): This committee is responsible for adding additional transparency about the impact of The Rea Foundation. It will also help make The Rea Foundation a bigger part of Rea’s brand story.

We also appointed new trustees to the Rea Foundation board: Don McIntosh (president), Paul McEwan (secretary), Tammy Haney (treasurer), and trustees Ben Antonelli, Becca Johns, Rick Lash and Maribeth Wright.
